EDITOR'S NOTES 

1 am working on the new computer system now and 
should have things going very well within the 
next few days. Right now, I am up on CP/M 
software and using my standard word processor. 
It has taken until Octooer 9tn to get the 
software set up properly to do proportional 
spacing. Many thanks to Pat LaFoliette and the 
others who helped. Jim Rae finally came up with 
the answer to make things work.

READER FORUM 

From Eveline Marcus: "Thai; your list of the 
frames in The Veliger is alphabetic, is right. It 
is not right, in papers, to put the animals in 
alphabetic sequence jpistead of systematic 
relations. And then one cha^iges its name as in 
the Chromodorididae frequently, and appears in 
quite another place in the next paper. I am 
sorry that Ti^ Veliger ailows that, but they 
have done that for a long time." 

From Susan H. Wells, Co-compiler,

Resources, Species Conservation Monitoring 
Unit, 219(c) Huntingdon Road, Cambridge, C33 
ODL, U.K.: "I obtained your name and address 
from the Opistho'o ranch ^wslBtter and am 
writing to enquire wliether you or any of your

on the compilation of the first volume of the

special responsibility for non-insect groups. 
Foilovjlng its publication I hope to be working 
on a more specialised volume for molluscs. 

Initially I had not expected to find any 
information on threatened opisthobranchs. 
However, a contact in the Netherlands provided 
information on an endangered nudlbranch and I 
enclose a copy of the data sheet. 1 would be 
'r.t9rs5'-/id to know if you or any of your 
colleagues have information on species in

Phylum HOLLUSCA 
NUDIBRANCHIA 

Class GASTROPCDA 

CORAf-iBIDAE 



ENDANGERED 

Orde*f 
Family 



SUi^SiARI This small brackish water sea slug is 
endemic to an area centred on the former 
Zuiderzee in the Netherlands. The closure of 
the Zuiderzee caused its disappearance from 
most known localities, including its type 
locality, and it may now be extinct. 

DESCRIPTION Tne shape of the mantle which is 
complete at the posterior end of the animal 
separates this species from its nearest 
relative, C. sargassicola from the Sargasso Sea 
(1). A small sea slug reaching only about 5mm 
in length, C. batava is variable in colour, 
ranging from yellow with black patches to dark 
brown or black all over. It has a circular • 
disc-shaped mantle and a flat, almost circu.lar 
foot (4). 

DISTRIBUTION Endemic to Holland. The type 
locality is at Durgerdam near Amsterdam beyond 
the River I.j. It has been recoraed from tne 
coasts of the former Zuiderzee from Amsterdam 
to Den Helder in many localities (1), including 
Wieringen on the Vangdam and near Oudeschild in 
Texel (3,4). ' 

POPULATIOM Unknovffli. 

HflBITAT AND ECOLOGY Found in brackish water 
generally in salinities from 7-25»o, but it can 
probably withstand salinities up to 30|o since 
large numbers have oeen round in Den Helder 
harbour. The lowest salinity in which it has 
been found is 6.7$o. It is restricted to 
shallow water on or near Cordylophora caspia 
on which it may feed; it has also been found on 
Meaibranipora (1,2). 

SCIEN'TIFIC INTEREST Am POTENTIAL VALUE 

THREATS TO SURVIVAL The closing of the 
Zuiderzee resulted In the disappearance of all 
tne brackish water fauna in tne area, and C. 
batava is almost certainly now extinct and 
definitely extinct in its type locality (1). The 
Zuiderzee was closed in May 1932, following 
which this species continued to be found in the 
northern part of the enclooed area uatil July 
of that year since when it has not been found 
there. In 1947 it was recorded at Texel (2). 



OPISTEOBAKCH NEWSLETTER 

CONSERVATION MEASURES TAKEN None. 

CONSERVATION MEASURES PROPOSED It could 
possibly still survive, in the harbour at Den 
Haider or in brackish water on some of tne 
Wadden Sea Islands, such as Texel. However 
both these areas are severely polluted. It is 
also conceivable that the species may be foOnd 
in France or England (5). Surveys should be 
carried out in the 'Wadden Sea and Den Helder 
harbour to ascertain if this species is still 
extant. If it is found, steps should be taken to 
ensure that it is protected in a suitable 
unpolluted area of brackish water.

PERSONAL NOTES 

From Eveline Marcus: "Back from my 'Winter^'' 
trip. My trip was nice as always, beginning with 
Terrence Gosliner in Cape Town, where we had 
long conversations about Pleurobranchaeidae, 
and finished a review of the family. Then I was 
with Claude Poizat, later I met Luise Schmekel, 
in between, family and friends, and stayed in 
Washington and with Dr. Rosalie Vogel, married 
Curabee. Now I will begin a revision of the 
Pie uro bran chidae, but it will take some time; I 
am getting old and work does not go as fast as 
when I was younger." 

From James Lance: "During Spring/Summer, 
19b2, we organized a number of overland and air 
expeditions to Bahia de ios Angeles, Sea of 
Cortez, Mexico, for the purpose of making a 
comprehensive survey of inter- and subtidai 
opisthobranch fauia during a given season. 1 
hoped that these data, when combined with 



\?oi. 14(9):31. 

previous information gathered over the past 25 
years, would provide a general picture of the 
opisthobranch populations from this area. 

Our overall task force of active 
collectors/ observers was not small (28 people 
participated). But it must be admitted that only 
7 of these could be described'as experienced 
'branch collectors. Still, over 500 SCUBA and 
200 intertidal man hours (pardcn me, person 
hours) were logged during tnis operation. Ihe 
area collected was sLmply uhe greater Bahia de 
los Angeles - its myriad rocky island shores 
and the channels between. For the most part, 
weather was perfect with glassy seas and clear 
visibility. 

Our entire operation came up with a rather 
disappointing 48 species - 40 of which we 
collected during 5 days in Kiay during extreme 
low, dawn tides in the Lntertidal; especially 
around the rocky islands. 

Some findings, however, should be enough to 
intrigue the biologically oriented 
opisthobranchologist: 

1. For the first time in the eastern Pacific we 
have found a cryptobranch dorid parasitized by 
an internal copepod aj^te different from 
literature reports. 

2. California's Flabellinopsis iodinea is our 
most colorful aeolid. This survey provided a 
startling look-alike not e'/en in the same 
family. 

3- A new aeolid that appears to feed 
exclusively en a sjraibiotic hydroid grC'jing on 
the back (dorsum) of a small, under-rock 
inhabiting prosobranch was found. A similar 
case has been reported from the northwestern 
Atlantic. 

4. Tasbja adere vs. Tanibja fusca: separate or 
the same species? Ever since Farmer (197b) 
described this (these) animals from the 
northern Panamic the validity of two species 
has been questioned. On. theses trips we were 
able to obtain more than a hundred specimens 
and study them in life. I would expect the 
results of this inquiry to satisfy most 
taxonomists. 

None of this work could have been carried 
out without the help of expecially dedicated 
persons. In particular I thank Connie Boone, 
Brad Carte and Johji 'Sullivan for their 
contributions. — Jim Lance. 

Dave Behrens is working on two new Corypheila 
spp. 

From Terry Gosliner: "First of all, I wanted 
to tell you that I will be in your area on a 
permanent basis. I just returned from a quick 
trip to San Francisco and will begin work at the 
Cal Academy on Dec. 1 as the new curator of 
moxlusks. Needless to say I am very pleased. 
In March I will be at the Smithsonian for a year 
and then return to San Francisco permanently.

represents a significant increase in the 
knowledge of the fauna. Also included is a 
forev;ard by T.E. Thompson, an introduction 
discussing the. evolutionary history, defense 
mechanisms, feeding, reproduction and larval 
biology of opisthobranchs. This is followed by 
sections on the systematics and collection of 
opisthobranchs and their biogeography in 
southern Africa. There is also a chapter en 
how to classify opisthobranchs designed for the 
layman but describes why internal morphology is 
essential. This section includes a glossary 
illustrated with numerous pen and ink drawings 
and a key to the identification of living 
specimens of all the species discussed. 1 tnink 
the price is fair. The format and size will be 
the same as the brochure I sent. It will be 
printed on high gloss paper, like the brochure, 
which pushes the cost up, but also the quality. 
It will only be printed in hard back, as Vve.U, at- 
this time." 

Nudibranchs of Southern Africa by Terrence 
Gosllner will be available from the 
Opisthobrancfa Ifewsletter for $30.00 U.S. plus 
postage and applicable taxes. 

Jim hcLean spent a week back in Cape Cod, 
Massachuset.ts this summer. 

From Dr. I.S. Roginskaya: "I am sending you 
an article of Soviet malacologist Dr. K.N. Nesis, 
concerning the interrelations of Aeolidia 
papillosa and sea-anemone Anthopieura 
elegantissisa, published In our popular 
m.agazine Science and Life. Aeolidia papillosa 
was photographed by me at the White Sea 
Biological Station. 

Wes Farmer, 410 So. 1st St. Sp.ld2, El Cajcn, 
CA 92021 (7l4)5c5b-ai53, is still making 
Opisthobranch models. If you are interested in 
one of his beautiful models, please contact him. 

Dave Behrens has recently taken some time 
off from branching to publish a short paper on 
the mating behavior of the Gray Whale, 
Eschrictius robustus. His paper just appeared 
in Califoraia Fish and Gane, 6o(1):50-53 + 
photos. . 

In late June, Steve Long, Roberta Relihard, 
Dave Mulliner, Peg Muliiner, and Joan Steinberg 
all. spent the afternoon at Jim Lance's. It was 
good to meet Dr. Steinberg after all these 
years. 

On October 15, 19b2, Pete Oringer, Howie 
Katzman, Steve Long, and Roberta got together 
for dinner in Long Beach. Pete is dowri from 
Eureka, California on business. 

From ^Selissa Barbour: "Just about the time 
your notice came we were In the throes of big 
changes. Jim started to work for the State 
Water Resources Control Board In Sacramento. 
He has been commuting 2X/weeK since then. I 
returned to work after a 3 mos. maternity leave, 
vte had a little girl, Nora, In January. I-jow we 



will be moving to Sacramento In the next month. 

I finished golig through the MacFarland 
slides, etc. just before Nora was bom — they 
have been collated Into the collection at 
California Academy of Sciences — some into the 
type collection and some into the regular 
collection. They are now at least flndable. 
That will probably be ray last Opisthobranch 
work for a while- Nora takes a lot of time & 
energy at this time." -- Melissa A. Barbour 

From Ian Loch: "li March, EUl Rudman, Geoff 
Avem, Judith Hunter, Helen Woodward and myself 
spent four days collecting around Yamba in 
northern N.S.W. Strong winds and a big swell 
reduced Geoff and I to 'diving' In tide pools, 
but the overall collections were quite good, 
about bO species. Diving in tide pools does 
concentrate the effort. Some of the beasts 
found were, Favorinus japa:iiGus In a variety of 
colour forms, Spurilla alba, S. australis, 
Phidiana bourailli, a new Phiaiana with oright 
blue bands on its cerata, Favorinus 
tsurugensis, a Limenandra, ^oJJ-diella

Dendrodoris gemmacea, D. guttata and otners 
Indeterminate as usual, a range of 
Pleurobranchus and various flat dorids 
including a common Discodoris which we found 
can 'control' its colour from light to dark." 

PatricK LaFoilette was been working at the 
AAAS in Washington, D.C., during August, and is 
now (October) on vacation In Canada. He
